BRAIN FOOD

March 31, 2004

“Sex makes you clever”… sinasabi ko na nga ba eh! kaya pala, i’m a fucking genius.

matagal nang palaisipan sa mga scientist ang evolutionary explanation ng sexual intercourse sa propagation ng species. binanggit ito ng idol kong carl sagan sa kanyang librong “shadows of forgotten ancestors”. bakit daw naimbento ang sex para magparami? bakit pa raw kailangang mag engage pa sa kung ano-anong mga rituals and excert so much time and effort just to be able to propagate.

sagan writes about it more eloquently:

“To say that love makes the world go around is to go too far. The Earth spins because it did so as it was formed and there has been nothing to stop it since. But the nearly maniacal devotion to sex and love by most of the plants, animals, and microbes with which we are familiar is a pervasive and striking aspect of life on Earth. It cries out for explanation. What is all this in aid of? What is the torrent of passion and obsession about? Why will organisms go without sleep, without food, gladly put themselves in mortal danger for sex? … For more than half the history of life on Earth organisms seem to have done perfectly well without it. What good is sex?…”

so, if it’s true then sex serves a higher purpose. other than make it possible for us to propagate, it also makes us smarter. now, that’s a classic case of natural selection at work.

pero kung basahin mong maigi ang news report, it’s the orgasm that triggers the chemicals in our brain that make us smarter. ibig sabihin nito, di ka actually kailangang makipag sex para tumaas ang IQ mo. in short, whether mayron kang partner o wala, may pag-asa kang tumalino. maraming mga implications ito… for example, pag mayrong kang final examinations, at di ka nakapag review ng husto. alam mo nang gagawin mo.

    Dear Jay,hahahaha, maganda ito–kasama ba wet dreams dito? anyway, based on the last line of the accompanying article :”Death is built in” medyo may katotohanan yata ito because the french has a term for the sexual act and the ensuing orgasmic episode as “le petit morte” or small or “little death”. So-in order to live longer(via your progeny) you die a little(when you had sex). gusto kong umabot ng 100 years old–imagine how much sex is that on your sex-o-meter. imagine,lolo ka na, nakangising manyakiss ka pa rin,muwahahah!

    Boss Idol Dengcoy!

    Tama yung sinabi mo. Malalim, as usual. Naalala ko tuloy yung “substance over form” na pinagusapan natin the last time.

    “Le petit morte” or “Little Deaths” – what a great and elegant way to describe it… at talagang tutuo. And literally so, for the other species of the animal kingdom – from mayflies to salmon, who commit one final sexual marathon and then they die.

    para sa ating mga tao naman, it really feels like a little death. the loss of breath, the racing heartbeat and the intense emotions. all of it leading to the orgasm.

    ang sarap.

    mayron nga pala akong copy ng “shadows of forgotten ancestors”, boss dengcoy. dalin ko rito sa singapore pag uwi ko sa antipolo.

    it’s one of my favorite non-fiction books.
